About Malham Cove (OS):

Malham Cove at first sight looks so impressive that to stand at the base of the central wall is quite forbidding. There are over 200 routes, VS all the way up to E9 and higher. Multi-pitch routes over 300 feet high. The hard routes are brilliant and should be on every visiting hard mans tick list. Lots of E6 climbs, hard to onsight even by the best. Be careful as many of the starts are unprotected, and have caused many injuries over the years. The cove gets a lot of sun and dries quickly. The best intros are on the right wall, with the center and left walls having the hard routes.
